The Caps and their dads rolled into St Louis looking to bounce back from Monday’s loss to the Pens. The Blues came out firing but Andre Burakovsky put the Caps up 1-0 after his curious shot selection was rewarded. Soon after. Jay Beagle continued his career season and put the Caps up 2-0.
Nineteen seconds into the second period, the Blues were rewarded for playing better then the Caps in the first 20 minutes and made the game 2-1. TJ Oshie, who has never scored 30 goals in a season, put the Caps back on top by two before the period was five minutes old. A few minutes later, Brett Connolly, who is one-third of the best third line in hockey, put the good guys up 4-1 and Allen was pulled again. Before Carter Hutton could even introduce himself, noted jerk Marcus Johasson rudely scored his first goal of 2017 to put the Caps up 5-1. Justin Williams added a PP goal for good measure to put the Caps up 6-1 before the end of the second.
Evgeny Kuznetsov made it 7-1 on a
fluky deflection bank shot that he totally meant to do. The Caps gave the Blues a couple sympathy goals before it was over.
CAPS WIN 7-3!
